Description

This book focuses on recent developments of Pichia pastoris as a recombinant protein production system. Highlighted topics include a discussion on the use of fermentors to grow Pichia pastoris, information on the O- and N-linked glycosylation, methods for labeling Pichia pastoris expressed proteins for structural studies, and the introduction of mutations in Pichia pastoris genes by the methods of restriction enzyme-mediated integration (REMI). Each chapter presents cutting-edge and cornerstone protocols for utilizing P. pastoris as a model recomibinant protein production system. This volume fully updates and expands upon the first edition.show more

Review quote

From the reviews of the second edition: "P. pastoris has many superior traits. ... can grow to very high cell densities prior to switching on an inducible promoter (the AOX1 gene) for maximal recombinant protein production. The diversity of such proteins produced by expression strains of P. pastoris is quite amazing and this book describes detailed experimental protocols for a few of them (e.g. hookworm protein, botulinum toxin). ... This is a stand-alone book ... . a book that will prove valuable to yeast molecular geneticists and biotechnologists." (Graeme Walker, Microbiology Today, May, 2008)show more

Back cover copy

The use of Pichia Pastoris as a recombinant protein system has increased greatly in popularity over the years. In Pichia Protocols 2nd Edition, the author focuses on new information that has come to light in recent years but repeats key basic methods so that researchers are not absolutely dependent on having both editions in order to utilize the system. The chapters in this indispensable laboratory aid cover a wide range of topics associated with Pichia Pastoris. The use of fermentors to grow Pichia Pastoris and good advice on how to go about the initial processing of material from these cultures is discussed. An extensive discussion on how to formally analyze mutations in essential P. pastoris genes is also presented. The final chapters are for cell biologists who are for cell biologists using the Pichia Pastoris system to investigate protein interactions, or to localize proteins in yeast cells. Pichia Protocols 2nd Edition, is an essential tool for researchers working with the Pichia Pastoris systemshow more
